Sure thing someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think showing family and friends around a police 'incident room' is common practice.

What is it in reality - a room? 

This is a door ... this is a desk ... this is a chair ... this is a document cabinet ... this is a computer screen ... this is a shredder ... this is a waste paper bin ... this is a kettle ... this is a dog, blimey where did that come from ... err have I missed anything?

As I ran back into the children’s room the closed curtains flew up in a gust of wind.

My heart lurched as I saw now that, behind them, the window was wide open and the shutters on the outside raised all the way up.

Nausea, terror, disbelief, fear. Icy fear. Dear God, no! Please, no!

What an eccentric performance.  Like a scene from the BBC's black (can I say that word?) comedy 'Inside No.9'.

Ms McCann omits to mention that in the very early hours of the PJ investigation, it was swiftly confirmed there was no evidence of raised shutters, open windows, a break-in, a break-out, nor anything else that might assist Ms McCann's somewhat creative mind.

And it wasn't until a whole year later, when finally they were given access to the police files, that Kate discovered that anyone checking the book at reception would have seen a note stating that the McCann party wished to eat in the tapas restaurant every night because they were leaving young children alone in the apartments and needed to be able to check on them easily.
Where is the note referred to above to be found in the PJ files?

Which book in reception?

What did the note say?

Who had access to the book?

There's the rub. After stating it was Rachael who managed to get a table booked (without saying when):

"It wasn’t until a year later, when I was combing through the Portuguese police files, that I discovered that the note requesting our block booking was written in a staff message book, which sat on a desk at the pool reception for most of the day. This book was by definition accessible to all staff and, albeit unintentionally, probably to guests and visitors, too. To my horror, I saw that, no doubt in all innocence and simply to explain why she was bending the rules a bit, the receptionist had added the reason for our request: we wanted to eat close to our apartments as we were leaving our young children alone there and checking on them intermittently."
  madeleine by KATE McCANN

It's a clever - not to say sly - construction of words to suggest a passing predator might have set his course by a note in a book. Here's how the paragraph got spun by a UK tabloid ('Kate McCann fears restaurant reservation booking tipped off Madeleine McCann's abductor'):

"Madeleine McCann may have been snatched after perverts spotted in a tapas reservation book she had been left alone at her holiday flat, mum Kate fears ..."
  https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/kate-mccann-fears-restaurant-reservation-127447

The saintly Kate absolves the receptionist but the article classes the book "left open and in full view of other diners" as a blunder and security lapse. Their aim is to sell newspapers. Kate McCann's is to give an account of the truth for Madeleine, Sean and Amelie, "so that, when they are ready, the facts will be there for them to read". And research.

Kate doesn't particularize her discovery of the block booking in the files but it is central to the witness statement of Luisa Coutinho, receptionist at the Ocean Club. Interviewed days after the disappearance, she remembered that a tall thin man made the booking for the group. During her interview she provided a book with the reservations for the Tapas restaurant, and while it is not said this was entered into the evidence there is no book with reservations discoverable in the PJ files. There are a number of reservation sheets, none with any note explaining the reason for the Tapas group's request.

  http://www.mccannpjfiles.co.uk/PJ/TAPAS_BOOKING.htm

So to what does Kate refer?

Reading the paragraph again, it can be interpreted that "the receptionist had added the reason for our request" means not a note to a book but information to her statement. As indeed she did:

The man justified his request by saying that the group had many small children whom they would leave alone when they went to dine. She said that at intervals some two parents would go to the apartments to see if everything was OK.
  http://www.mccannpjfiles.co.uk/PJ/LUISA_COUTINHO.htm

The receptionist is relating what she had been told about the reservation not speaking from knowledge since she worked only until 19:00. There is nothing to say this 'note' had been entered into any book. There is nothing to say how the book with the reservations for the Tapas restaurant was handled or kept. Kate's horror therefore is a matter between her conscience and herself. It calls to the impressionable reader (or newspaper hack) that here is drama where in fact there is no evidence to say that, even if there was a staff message book, anyone other than staff saw it - that word 'probably' - on a desk or anywhere.

To those who believe the tapas reservation was by way of establishing a record of routine, the idea of a staff message book with the inclusion of 'a note' highlighting that a child was available to be abducted goes with an excursion to the beach as parts of a plan.

Not only What is in the book but Why.

As we were walking up from the beach at about 5pm, I had a call from Cherie Blair, in her final days as wife of the prime minister

She was kind and helpful

This was only five days after the abduction

madeleine by KATE MCCANN
...................

If walking on the beach, the call must have been received on a mobile phone.

What was Cherie Blair doing with the mobile phone number of either Kate or Gerry McCann, only five days after Madeleine McCann was reported missing?

Blair, Brown, Cameron, May - I wonder if the McCanns have had direct contact with Boris Johnson somewhere along the way, or are those heady days of fame and fortune now lost in the myths of time.

Alex Woolfall told us that the News of the World, spearheading a group of other benefactors – including Bill Kenwright, the theatre impresario and chairman of Everton FC, businessmen Sir Richard Branson and Sir Philip Green and Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling [CH, OBE, HonFRSE, FRCPE, FRSL - don't ask cos I don't know]  was prepared to put up a reward ‘package’ totalling £1.5 million.

They are acronyms you get for copying out someone else's ancient stories about a three headed dog, (Cerberus) but then not understanding that the whole point was that one head was always awake, and allowing all three to go to sleep . . 
for copying someone else's stories about flying broomsticks
for copying someone else's stories about walking through solid objects ( the back of a wardrobe, or a wall in a railway station, or into a walled garden) to reach a secret location
for copying someone else's stories about unicorns and werewolves, and metalworking goblins (Nibelungen)
for copying someone else's stories about mermaids and mermen
for copying someone else's stories about giants spiders (Shelob)
for copying someone else's stories about the deadly powers of the Basilisk
for copying someone else's stories about Trolls, dragons, giants, and all the rest

and rolling it all up (Rowling it all up ! ) into a sort of mash, and then marketing it very cleverly as
something to get children to READ – only then to sell the film and video Game rights for multi millions.

Brilliant.
Never underestimate the gullibility of the General Public

Thursday 3rd May 2007

I had finished my run by five-thirty at the Tapas area, where I found Madeleine and the twins already having their tea with Gerry.

The others had decided to feed their kids at the beachside restaurant, the Paraíso. Madeleine was sitting on the Tapas terrace, eating.

She looked so pale and worn out, I went straight up to her and asked if she was all right. Had she been OK at the club when Ella left to go to the beach? Yes, she said, but now she was really tired and wanted me to pick her up, which I did. Ten minutes later, the five of us went back to our apartment.

I was carrying Madeleine. Because she was so exhausted we skipped playtime that evening.
